Welcome to News and Views, your one stop shop for everything that’s happening in your community. Kicking things off in Ramsey this month, our first guest is City Council Member Kristine Williams. Kristine is making her first appearance on News and Views, and we want to give her a big welcome. Also joining us from Ramsey is Fire Marshall Carey Schiferli, Carey is here to talk about fire prevention week and some things that we need to be aware of. Next up we head to the city of Champlin, where City Council member Eric Johnson stops by to give us an update on development in the city of Champlin, as well some budget updates. Also from Champlin we are joined by parks and recreation manager Alicia Jahnke. Alicia provides us with a recap on all the great summer events that went on, and how we can get involved in next year’s festivities. Next up we cross the bridge into the city of Anoka, where mayor Phil Rice swings by to give us a status update on the city of Anoka, and chats up Anoka Halloween for good measure. And from the Anoka Planning commission we are joined by Borgie Bonthuis. Borgie was kind enough to chat with us about some planning commission functions, and much more. And finally we head to the city of Andover, where city council member Val Holthus gives us the low down on the city campus redesign, and Todd Haas will educate us all on the 67 beautiful parks in the city of Andover. All that and much more coming right up, on News and Views.
